Marshall Stubing was cool!!
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Breaking with the more formulaic stories, and allowing Gavin MacLeod to stretch his comedic chops, this episode featured MacLeod playing "Marshall Stubing," the ne'er-do-well brother of Captain Merrill Stubing. Marshall was the free-wheeling Stubing kid who never grew up into the responsibilities of adulthood, and caused Capt. Stubing nothing but trouble and worry in this episode. Let the party begin ... on the captain's tab, naturally!

Diane Ladd did a good job in this episode playing Marshall's shipboard partner in "partying." One fun sequence involved Marshall bringing Diane Ladd and a crowd of revelers onto the bridge of the Pacific Princess, much to the irritation of Capt. Stubing. While sipping his martini, Marshall insists the group ignore the captain's order to leave and, instead, sing a round of "Row-Row-Row Your Boat." Marshall finds the button for the ship's horn on a big control panel, and, before the captain can stop him, sounds one long blast so the group can sing "on key!"
